NRA Unimpressed With Obama Skeet Shooting Photo

The National Rifle Association on Saturday said that its estimation of President Barack Obama hasn’t improved after the White House’s release of a photo showing him skeet shooting.

“One picture does not erase a lifetime of supporting every gun ban and every gun-control scheme imaginable,” said Andrew Arulanandam, a spokesman for the NRA, according to the Associated Press.

The photo was a response to skeptics who questioned Obama’s claim that he goes skeet shooting “all the time.” In the photo, which was taken last August at Camp David, Md., the President is shown shooting clay targets.
